Contradiction is an interactive crime drama game that uses live-action video for the entirety
of the game play. You play a character called Inspector Jenks, a police detective assigned to the
case of a student found drowned in a lake one morning in a sleepy English country village. As you
wander around the village, Jenks automatically makes note of objects you find, unusual things you see,
events you witness and information you pick up. You also meet several characters, who will tell you
what they know about each of your notes, with their replies noted as a list of bullet points.
But Contradiction is full of liars – and liars always slip up and contradict themselves. The name
of the game is to listen to characters’ replies and spot the contradictions.
